FINAL EXIT ON DVD: (2006). For those who want detailed illustrated advice on how to bring their terminal suffering to a peaceful, nonviolent end, this video produced by journalist and author Derek Humphry, is a great companion to his book 'Final Exit'. Humphry, who founded the original Hemlock Society, and ran it for its first twelve years, provided the direction and spoken voice in this video adaptation of his famous 'how-to' book which was the #1 New York Times nonfiction bestseller in 1991, and which remains consistently popular today.
Suicide (a.k.a. rational suicide) is no longer a crime but assisted suicide can be (except in Oregon, where doctors may do it under tight guidelines,) so Humphry warns about legal matters connected with voluntary euthanasia and assisted suicide. The video demonstrates there is no need for a Dr. Kevorkian, or any other doctor, if a careful and simple plan of action is followed by a person who wishes to handle their own euthanasia, self-deliverance, or assisted suicide.
The video describes the ways to mix and ingest lethal drugs -- the so-called 'peaceful pill' method -- and closely illustrates how a dying person may have an assisted death using an inert gas available in stores.
An adjunct resource to Final Exit, 3rd edition book and Final Exit Addendum (Supplement). This guidance is for the possible use by a terminally or hopelessly ill competent adult who wishes to avoid further unrelieved pain and distress.
Directed, written & narrated by Derek Humphry. 46 min length. NTSC format.
